The alumni association is the most important part of an educational institution. Part of the reputation of an institution rests on its Alma Mater. Though the mantle of taking up the responsibility of setting up a proper alumni network has taken a setback over the few year, the newly formed Student Alumni-Liaison Committee took things upon themselves to improve the present scenario of our institute. On 11th January, 2015, the committee organised a seminar on the “Prospects of Higher Education”, where the speaker was one of our alumnus presently pursuing his PhD. in University of Minnesota, USA, Mr. Biswaranjan Mohanty, a 2009 pass-out from the Department of Mechanical Engineering. This initiative can be very well put out as a perfect prelude to the NITR Alumni Reunion which is set to be held later this month.
